Here’s a great idea, why don’t you visit Mechelen and take the whole family with you?

Your trip starts here and at Tourism Mechelen, where climbing is mandatory: up you go into the tree of inspiration. Are you curious to learn more? Then drop in, a free backpack also awaits you.

3...2...1... get set, explore! Mechelen sends you on your way and Explore Mechelen: two family-friendly publications. Can you find them in the tree of inspiration?

3...2...1... play!  Several gigantic playing areas popped up in the city.  Who will be the next fountain-dancing champion or the best Opsinjoor climber? Click here for even more fun and games.

You can get to the Toy Museum, Planckendael zoo or the Flemish science centre Technopolis in no time at all.

Too much to pack into one day? We agree. Why not spend the night in one of the family-friendly hotels and let the whole family enjoy VIP treatment? Even the youngest eaters are welcomed with a big smile in the many restaurants in the city.

In short, Mechelen is never boring!
